What do you know about bitcoin?

It's the largest cryptocurrency, enabling a P2P payment system with significantly lower transaction fees than traditional systems. Allows for micropayments, especially in markets where people have access to web but no access to banking systems. Currently unclear regulatory environment. Bitcoin currency is an app' on the Bitcoin platform/protocol. That platform will enable many other types of financial transactions, including complex agreements such as derivatives. Bitcoin the currency and Bitcoin the platform/protocol will eventually revolutionize worldwide finance and bring it into the age of the internet.

Are you a business owner, developer, user?
